stock up now: trader joe candy cane green tea


There are lots wonderful seasonal things filling grocery store shelves right now: Egg nog, peppermint bark, cheese logs. One thing that gives me great joy is Trader Joe’s Candy Cane Green Tea. It is the perfect way to end any meal. Did you know that green tea is a great breath freshener? And, because it’s decaffeinated I can sip it on the couch while I watch Boardwalk Empire. Which I’m about to do right now.

If you have a Trader Joe’s near you, I seriously suggest you stock up. (I have enough to get me through the next season of Downton Abbey — starting in January.) What is your favorite holiday-only grocery store gem? Please share! — Angela M.

Not technically grocery store, but green mountain coffee’s eggnog coffee is my fav. It’s a less fattening version of Starbucks eggnog lattes.

oh my goodness!! this sounds sooooo good! I think I may have to make the trek to TJ’s!


If you are already racing to Trader Joe’s for Candy Cane Joe-Joes and Candy Cane Green Tea, get the other seasonal tea, Vanilla & Cinnamon Black Tea.

I am almost as excited to rush out and buy this tea as I am for Downton Abbey to start again :) Thanks for the tip!
